$File1 is the filepath using clpboard, but does not work....with error MSG 2

WinActivate("Microsoft Excel")
Send("^c")
Sleep(500)
Local $File1 = ClipGet()
Sleep(500)
Local $File2 = "d:\a.doc"
Local $oDoc = _Word_DocOpen($oWord,$File1, Default, Default, True)

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

You need to add some error checking. A few additional questions:

  • What is the value of $File1?
  • Where do you call _Word_Create?
  • Why don't you use the Excel UDF to process your workbook?
